I'm moving to a new city in Minnesota from Wisconsin next weekend, and I just found out that the road in front of my new building will be closed for a week except for local traffic due to construction. I'm now concerned about my moving truck being able to get to my building on moving day. I've moved three other times before and I've never been in this situation. Should I be concerned? I really don't want to re-schedule my movers for the following week and have to come back down to Wisconsin to supervise. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would assume that your move would be "local traffic." But, you could call the city and make sure.

I am moving to a downtown apartment in Redding, CA, on Nov 4th, and the last time i drove up there I noticed that there are only certain parking spots that say you can park there if you have a permit, and everything else is metered. I had figured I'd move there, probably get a ticket my first day, then go figure out how to get a permit.

Then I decided to call the city clerk and ask. Seems so obvious, but they were really nice and told me the cost and I mailed them a money order and they're going to mail the permit to me so I don't get a ticket.

Anyway, give the city a call and see what's up.

Hope you enjoy your new place!

That depends on the reason for the road closure, the size and weight of the vehicle used to handle your interstate move, the moving company's and/or driver's willingness to expose their manpower and equipment to an "impractical" operation situation, and accommodations that the construction company and local authorities are willing to make.

You may have to pay additional charges if the mover has to use a smaller truck to accomplish the delivery.

Thanks for your replies. I'm going to call my moving company today and just let them know what might be going on next week. Luckily the construction starts Monday & might be finished by next Saturday.
